Ang Maso: VM Pajela payag sa loading at unloading sa SM


ROSALES VICE MAYOR JOJO PAJELA, heto naman po ang tamang paraan ng lying, stealing, cheating at drinking na aking nakita. Hehehe

“I would like to make a toast to lying, stealing, cheating and drinking. If you’re going to lie, lie for a friend. If you’re going to steal, steal a heart. If your going to cheat, cheat death. And if you’re going to drink, drink with me.” – Anonymous Toast

Kung si Vice Mayor Pajela ang tatanungin niyo? Mas gusto niyang payagan ang loading at unloading sa tapat ng SM.

Ito ay para sa kapakanan ng mas nakararami.

SM is coming to Dagupan City


Has Dagupan City Vice Mayor Belen Fernandez given-up her stance that she and the majority members of the Sangguniang Panglungsod (lawmaking body) can gather and identify who among the 381 tricycle operators can be given a franchise?

Her stance and those of her allies at the SP, drew criticism from other quarters that accused them of usurpation of an executive function – a criminally punishable act.

After they passed the ordinance on franchise, Mayor Lim did not think twice to veto it.

Booboos on hostages’ rescue mission


The hostages’ rescuers in Manila recently were no different to the hostess takers (who asked the poor lass to dance naked inside the police station) in Mangaldan, Pangasinan.

All of them, including their ground commander, were frozen from their post because they disgraced the police force.

As I watched the unfolding hostage drama on TV around 7 Pm in August 23, I could only disgustingly shake my head how incompetent and poorly equipped our Special Weapon and Tactics (SWAT).

Teachers’ brutality


A fractured left leg. A half semester in school lost at the AMA- Computer Learning Center in Urdaneta City. A physical pain. An emotional pain that forever will hound him. And a family’s debt of more than P60,000.00 due to hospitalization and medical expenses.

These are now the situations of a male, 21 years old student of Bacag vllage, Villasis, Pangasinan after he was allegedly mauled by two teachers in the same barangay at 8:00 in the evening of July 24, 2010 at Mighty 7 sari-sari store (variety store), also located in the same village.

Mark Philip B. Surmilla, writhing in pain, narrated to me what happened in that fateful night.

Jueteng sa Pangasinan nasilip sa national


HABANG WALA SI GOB ESPINO ay binanatan siya sa DZBB at Journal tungkol sa jueteng.

Ano ang motive? Meron bang nagaganap na agawan sa area sa hanay ng mga may franchise sa Jueteng?

Councilor Romy Sim ng Rosales, meron kayang gusto na mahawakan ang jueteng sa Pangasinan dahil bago na ang Pangulo?

Noong August 10 nagulat ako ng mabasa ko ang naisulat ni Erwin Tulfo sa Journal Online na tuloy-tuoy pa rin ang Jueteng dito sa Pangasinan.

Kanino naman kaya niya nakuha ang datos na 47 daw na bayan ang may Jueteng?

ON THE PROPOSED K-12 CURRICULUM (Part1)


By Rex Lor

If you think education is expensive, try ignorance. – Derek Bok

There is a commotion that’s hounding the academe nowadays. There is strong resounding proposal a new re-proposing a 12-year basic education curriculum. It seems that the strength and rationality of the 12-year Basic Education proposal is gaining more voices as educational outcomes of our children are going down compared to our neighbors in the ASEAN region. We are now in danger of losing against Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia as they are stepping up their K-12 English curriculum. There are many criticisms to this urgent proposal. Let me try to enlighten our readers a little bit on an encapsulated point-per-point exposition especially for the benefit of our fellow Rotarians who still have children or grandchildren in school.

K-12 is expensive. Let me start with Harvard’s Derek Bok on educational cost. Education is expensive but the numerous, consistent and expensive failures will far outweigh the cost of educating the young. As employers, why don’t we hire high school graduates?

“Battle of political giants” for PCL presidency


It will be a month more before the election of the Philippine Councilors League- Pangasinan Chapter. There will be two protagonists for the much-coveted presidency- Councilor Kelvin T. Chan of Pozorrubio, a third –termer councilor; and Councilor Salvador “Dong” S. Perez, Jr. of San Manuel, a first termer councilor but not a neophyte in political arena having been an SK chair in his town.

What makes the competition between the two challengers is the presence of their famous fathers. Kelvin has the backing of Mayor Artemio Chan, a seasoned politician in the 5th district, while Perez has the backing of his father Vice Mayor Salvador “Badong” Perez, a consummate politician of 6th district. Both fathers are in the frontlines in assisting the candidacies of their sons.
